...is only a month away! I can hardly believe it, where has the time gone?!? I ordered the party supplies and made his birthday crown. Anyone who knows Jason won't be surprised that this will be the party theme:
and doesn't he look adorable in his birthday crown?
and yes, I know, I am bending his ear in this picture. He's not a fan of hats so I had to be quick. I found the pattern for this crown here and it cost me a total of $1.00 to make. It probably took a total of 30 minutes to make, including the time it took to cut out the pieces and measure his gigantic head. I didn't know at the time that we were doing a Super Mario party or I would have coordinated the colors better, but he'd look cute either way :) I'm trying to plan a frugal, yet special birthday party. This seems like the first time we've planned a birthday party where there will be other children there (niece and nephews.) I ordered some lollipops from Etsy, some red "M" lollis for Mario and some green "L" lollis for Luigi. I'm putting together my own favor boxes so that will save a little money too. If I have time and get really crafty (doubtful though) I will make similar hats for the other kids, but make them look like red and green painters hats, with the kids' initials. I love planning birthday parties, but only because I've never had to plan one for a ton of children. :)
